Some mentions about  last single “My Girls”

“My Girls” – a 60s infused pop track that seamlessly blends blues, soul, and rock with class 
– Aupium

“If you are already suffering pre-Monday morning blues – My Girls – has a simplicity and heart-lifting vibe that will dispel those darkening clouds and leave the world looking a far better place than was the case two and three quarter minutes earlier.”
– Emerging Indie Bands

“The song is a brilliant mix of 50s rock, 60s girlbands, and ACTUAL Christmas music. There’s a lot to love here, and we love every bit of it.”
– Scandipop

(Some reviews of live performances and earlier releases)
“Imagine Little Richard and Blondie having a love child. That child would sound like The Vanjas. The quartet has taken everything that was fun during the 50’s and 60’s and invented something new.”
– Anna Engström, U-port, hymn.se 2/8 2015
“During a few fantastic, crazy and wild moments I wonder to myself if I’ve experienced anything like this since… well, since I heard The Hives for the first time”
-Dennis Andersson, Barometern
“In The Vanjas backpack, Larry Williams 50’s rock is hanging out with Blondies 70’s. British The Who is also among the influences as are American The Sonics.”
– Lollo Asplund, Corren
“The Vanjas are world class in their genre, together with bands like Detroit Cobras and The Jim Jones Revue.
